Beat heartbreak forever

BHF research female in lab

Here at the British Heart Foundation we fund research to beat the world’s biggest killers. We fund over £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and their causes.

After more than 50 years of research, we understand better than ever the connections between the heart and the rest of the body.

For example, we know that what’s happening in the veins in one part of the body impacts the arteries elsewhere. And we know that conditions like vascular dementia, stroke, heart diseases and diabetes are connected. Because if your heart isn’t pumping properly, and blood isn’t flowing properly, you’re at risk of developing one or more of these conditions.

Our research, is the promise to protect the people we love. Our parents. Our brothers. Our sisters. Our grandparents. Our closest friends.
Research is who we are. The promise of future cures and treatments. The promise to beat heartbreak forever.

We’ve helped transform survival rates but heart and circulatory diseases still kill 1 in 4 people in the UK, they cause heartbreak on every street. And our work is urgent and vital as ever.

People’s donations and your fundraising have got us this far. Every breakthrough we’ve made, funded by people like you.
